Using Digital Solutions to Improve and Optimize Energy Production

A roundtable discussion focusing on making digital solutions a reality in the oil, gas and power generation sectors. Many benefits have been promised, but expectations have not been reached. Expectations have been fueled by quick returns from other sectors, however, when understanding the limitations and important facets for oil, gas and power generation the benefits which have been achieved (case studies) are even greater. The roundtable will explore these limitations, how to overcome them and how extract value with real-life case studies.

Industry 4.0 and Cybersecurity Challenges

The Industry 4.0 revolution brings with it a new operational risk for connected, smart manufacturers and digital supply networks: cyber. Industrial Cybersecurity should be an integral part of the strategy, design, and operations from the beginning of any new connected, Industry 4.0–driven initiative.

In light of Industry 4.0, our expert line up of panellists will examine visibility, control, and situational awareness in relation to your cyber security strategy – and their impact on the future of digital manufacturing.

From this panel you can expect to hear:

  • Top trends impacting today’s manufacturers security strategy
  • What are the cyber security-specific technical issues associated with Industry4.0?
  • What are the cyber security-specific training and education issues associated with Industry4.0?

Robot coworkers: How AI impacts the future of work

What happens when technology advancements threaten to automate people’s jobs?
That question is on the minds of many as research and development in artificial intelligence and machine learning rapidly advances.

Recently ASU received a million dollar NSF Convergence Accelerator Grant to create autonomous systems that are not only more adaptable and efficient in manufacturing environments, but also have built-in adaptive tutoring systems that will cooperate with factory workers and retrain them to use AI technology so they are not displaced from their jobs. This multidisciplinary project is focused on using AI to augment the workplace rather than replace workers.
